    The 10 and 9 speed chains are different and not sure if the 9 speed chain will play nice on a 10 speed chainring. You could always get a new 9 speed chainring. The other thing is that that is a 36t and I would prefer a 32t. Not sure what your trails are like but you currently have a 32t in the center. You will also need a new BB.

    9 speed chains work perfectly fine on 10 speed rings. 10 speed chains work great on 9 speed cassettes. Use whichever chain you want.

    SilentFoe, as always, you've been awesome with the answers. Thanks you! It seems I've repped you to often as it wont let me rep you again.

    On to my next question, I believe it's a simple one.

    I just need to know if this will lace right into the stock wheels: Amazon.com: Shimano HB-M788 XT Front Disc Thru Axle Hub (32H Front 15-mm CenterLock Disc): Sports & Outdoors

    I'm almost positive it will, but I wanted to check before I purchased it.

    I'm going to take advantage of the Suntour upgrade program, but don't like the idea of upgrading to a 9mm.

    Re: Revel Thread

    Ready for this...

    The stock hub flange diameter is 59mm and spoke length is 285mm.

    The XT hub you want has a flange diameter of 44mm and would require 291mm spokes.

    So basically you would need 32 new spokes as well. That would add approx. $32 to your project.

    I'd highly recommend just getting a completely new wheel at that point.

    Pm me if you'd like a great price on a take-off from a 2011 Giant Anthem 29er (un-used).

    Oh, also that is a center lock hub. Do you have center lock rotors? If not you'd need to get a new rotor as well. Good luck with the upgrades.

    I have a tape measure. Bunch of other tools, too.

    Not sure what point to measure to. Care to divulge?

    Giant site says "Seatpost Giant Sport, 30.9" - I think that is inches.

    On another note, those witht the Suntour XCT fork....can you hear the springs inside it? I kept hearing this noise, that sounded like plastic or something similar slapping around on jumps and what not, and couldn't figure it out. I think it is coming from the fork...I'm also getting a lot of play in the fork as well....and only after about 150 miles...

    OK, I'm making my drivetrain purchase today, but was wanting a little advice.

    I'm picking up a Race Face Evolve crankset with BB this weekend for $30. I picked up a used Deore XT 9 speed rear shifter on eBay for $25. I'm converting to a 1x9 setup.

    I'm ordering an n-gear jumpstop, but I don't know the diameter of the seat post. does anyone know what that is on the 29er frame? I tried to measure it last night, but couldn't find anything to get an accurate measurement.

    I'm going SLX with the drivetrain...already ordered the Cassette in 11/34. I just want to make sure this will work with everything else with no real issues...I want to go with the shadow derailuer and short cage since I'm going 1x9. Amazon.com: Shimano America RD-M662 SLX 9-Speed Rear Derailleur: Sports & Outdoors

    Thoughts?

    I pulled my forks apart the other night. Not much to them. A rubber washer in one leg was totally destroyed and the leg was full of pulverized rubber. Cleaned it up and made another washer and re-greased and reassembled. My stanchions are a mess too. Both have wear marks that were very rough. I buffed them out the best I could with scotch-brite and the stiction seems a bit better. I can't wait to get new forks but don't want to part with the $$$ LOL

    I'm hoping so. I just bought the Raidon X1 LO-R 29" air fork. Looking forward to it as I'm sure I've destroyed the internals of my Suntour XCT...it squeaks, the pre-load adjust does nothing, it just spins and I can hear the springs popping and pinging when I'm riding. And it doesn't even have 200 miles on it yet.

    I don't really blame the fork, it wasn't intended for everyday use with jumping and dropping etc.

    I know. Just cant decide what to get.

    Suntour Raidon X1-RL, best price using upgrade feature.
    RS Recon Silver Solo Air, really would like motion control.
    RS Reba RL, way out side my price range.

    I just bought the 29" version of that Raidon...I'll report back on how it performs.

    It's mm's. That figure is the post's diameter, not length.

    I went with the RS Recon Silver Solo Air on my revel....... It is so much better than the stock Suntour. I don't know about the Raidon, but if you go with the recon, you'll love it!

    Re: Revel Thread

    Not riding again until my new fork comes in. Today I was out hitting the trails with my kiddo and going over some nice easy jumps when my fork seized in the low position. Caused me to throw my weight over the bars and then the bars turned 90 degrees. Over the bars I went.

    Not much worse than having the air knocked out of you in front of your kid while you pretend to be a walrus because you can't breathe.

    Yikes! That looks like something is really tweaked. I hope your new fork comes soon.
